British military experts predict that
the war -will be loner and devastating.
Turkey, they think, will win in the
final reckoning, but it is expected that
the Greeks and Bulgarians will be vlo
tors in the first pitched battles owing
to the fact that they -will be able to
adopt the tactics of the American gen

On paper Turkey seems much the

credit for resources that are not likely
to mature in fart. It is admitted by
the pro-Turk British generals that the

The Balkan alliance has pitted

Rudolph Spreckels Advises
Progressives That Wilson
Is Their Only Hope
Regarding the attempted assassina
tion of Colonel Roosevelt, Rudolph
Spreckels, who is now in New York,
sent the following telegram yesterday
to the local Wilson national progres
sive republican league headquarters:
Every true American must de
plore as I do the attempted assas
sination of Roosevelt and rejoice
with me in his fortunate escape
from death. The natural sympa
thy for Colonel Roosevelt and his
family, felt alike by all citizens,
will not, however, change the re
sults of the election to Le held No
vember 5. The nation's welfare is
at stake in the corning election, and
the people realize that by their
votes they will determine what
kind of government they are to
live under during the ensuing four
years, so that there is no danger of
their being influenced to cast their
votes by other considerations.
The people have suffered great
injustice during the past years,
and they now want a government
that really will represent them and
be free from all entangling alli
ances with trust representatives.
Therefore, any attempt on the part
of progressive party leaders to
appeal for votes for their ticket
and platform because of the popu
lar sympathy for their stricken
leader can not succeed.
If the presidential election had
been held Monday last "Woodrow
Wilson certainly would have re
ceived an overwhelming majority.
There has been no change in the
campaign issues since then, and I

Protection for Americans
WASEHXGTOiV. Oct. 17.—Officials here
became thoroughly alarmed today over
the imminent danger to Americana in
Vera Cruz. Mexico, captured Wednesday
by rebels, and Beekman Winthrop,
art secretary of the navy, ordered
the (Tuifier l)es Moines, now making
a tour of Mexican ports, to return to
Vera Cruz.
Commander Hughes will have full
power to exercise his own discretion
in safeguarding Americans in the be
leaguered city and without further In
structions can land a party it con
ditions warrant.
The Dea Moines has 27 bluejackets
aboard but carries no marines. It
left Vera Cruz 3 0 days ago for Puerto
Mexico, whence it sailed yesterday for
Progresso. to arrive tonight. It will
return with all speed to Vera Cruz,
about 450 miles to the southwest.
Although messages to the state de
partment confirming, the surrender of
Vera Cruz to General Fella Diaz, re
port that the city is qtiiet, officials
realize the perilous position of Amer
icans and other foreigners would rind
themselves in should the Mexican fed
erals attempt to recapture the city.
Reports from Mexico City said the
movement of which General Diaz is the
master spirit has attracted widespread
sympathy. Confirmation has been re
ceived here of the introduction of a
bill in the Mexican chamber of deputies
calling for the ftnmediate resignation
of the cabinet.
Madero Still Target
KLJpASQ. Tex., Oct. 17. —"All revo

fall of Madero and the pov.ernment,"
declared Attorney Gomez Robelo. per
sonal representative of the revolution
of Pascual Orozeo in the north of Mex
ico when seen in his hiding place in
El Paso.
Released from jail here and exon
erated from political charges preferred
by the Mexican government representa
tives, Robelo is avoiding rearrest, but
is keeping quite in touch with develop
ments not only along the border, but
at the national capital.
"I have evidence here," said he. pro
ducing letters to prov* his assertion,
"that the revolutions begun by Gen
eral Feliz Diaz and General Aguilar
in the state of Vera Cruz, is in con
junction with Oroxco's movement in
the no»th. The federals will not fight
against the rebels. How then will they
fight against their brothers, the fed
erals who have revolted in Vera Cruz?
"That so far no one man has been
championed for president of the re
public is proof that the new movement
will be popular. Always before has
Mexico been cursed with revolutions
prompted by some particular man. This
revolution, of the revolutionists in the
north, of the military in the aouth, and
soon of all the people, merely is the
outcry against a national shame."
Robelo produced letters to show that

with a general plan, part of which has
not transpired. Hβ showed a copy of

Mrs. Henry G. Hutt,
Who Got Divorce
From Noted Artist
Modern Venus Weeps Through
Tale of Cruelty, But De*
cree Dries Tears
[Specie/ Dispatch to The Call] „
RENO. Oct. 17.—N0 more dramatic
scenes have occurred In a Reno di
vorce court than took place today,
when Mrs. Edna G. Hutt took the stand
to testify in her divorce suit against
Henry Hutt, the celebrated artist, who
once said she was more beautiful than
the Venus de Milo.
Mrs. Hutt trembled with nervousness
and the tears streamed down her
cheeks, reddening her pretty nose and
causing- much concern to her frierd,
Mrs. Henry Mechling of New York,
who accompanied her to Reno and filed
a divorce complaint.
Mrs. Hutt tried to be brave, but as
she told of the times when her hus
band attempted to choke her, the tears
welled to her eyes and she nearly col
lapsed. Smelling salts were adminis
tered and .Judge French ordered a short
When Mrs. Hutt recovered, the court
reconvened and she told another series
of cruelties and explained how her
talented husband had taken to drink-
Ing and how he would abuse her. She
recited a tale of suffering - , while a
fringe of divorce seekers craned their
ears to hear the testimony.
Mrs. Hutt told of the time she went
to Narragansett pier and her husband
stripped her apartmente of all the fur
niture and when she got back the
apartment was bare. She had no home,
no place to rest her weary head, so
she. went to her aunt, and that wae
how her husband deeerted her, ehe said.
It was a sorrowful tale accompanied
by many tears, and the courtroom was
silent. Not a sound disturbed the pro
ceedings except her sobbing-. Judge
French asked her a few questions, and
then granted her an absolute decree
of divorce on the grounds of desertion.
Mrs. Hutt managed to smile through
tlie veil of tear.*, and as ehe was sur
rounded by her friend and attorney
her nervousness disappeared and she
left the courthouse and ■♦ent to her
apartments, where she proceeded to
pack her belongings for her departure
to New York.
This evening Mr? Hutt Is the gay
est member of the divorce colony. Hap
piness has entered, and all is peace
end contentment. She would not dis
russ her future plans. All she would
say was that she intended going back
!to New York, and the Joy in her voice
was different from the sobs and
anguleh displayed on the witness stand.
Two victories for the city of San
Francisco in the last series of con
demnation suits for land , for the civic
center were made known yesterday,
when the jury in the suit against the
Joseph Rich company in Judge John
Hunt's court awarded damages of

by the defendants, and the suit of
Eugenia Fisher was compromised at
